Well, i made a stone version of my dino .. now i put it into a composition .. tell me what you think . I need to model something more realistic to do that with though . And the eye could of been the same color as the skin to make it look more like a statue or something. Ok, i will be starting on accessories today .. i have actually been trying for a few hours in the past 2 days.. just i cannot make anything that "fits".. i will come through though .

Just having fun, modelled some crazy stupid weapon for him with cheezy golden textures. Anyways, thats definately not suiting him! Time to take that away, bring back the other look and go for something else.

M:
I like this!! I think that the weapon does suit him! Just right to hack pony's cenataur off at the knees! lol sorry pony!!

what about some armour? maybe roman style quite chunky, lots of rivets and stuff?

Yellow shader definatley needs work but i think that yellow does work as a colour for him, what about looking at kurts model to get inspiration for the texture?

He kinda looks like the guy from tekken 3, Gon I think it was

Great stuff though

Pony:

Looking great man! I'm really looking forwards to seeing this character with the arrows and bow! I think you could get some really nice shots with arrows flying towards the camera's etc.

Great stuff guys

Thanks alan . I also agree that the yellow texture needs more of a nice look to it. To acheive this i will have to unwrap the uv's.. which is my next step. I was talking to pony on icq and then this came up, i just had to do it . About your chunky armor style idea?? I LOVE IT.. i will give him a full plate . That was one of my original things i thought of before i even started the model, yet it totally left my mind by the time i started modelling... thanks!

BTW, its hard to make him look stressed . i need to re rig him probably and add some more bones at the eyebrows.

Hehe, asta la vista centuar

actually it looks cool with the gun aswell... but to me the medieval / roman look sounds better.

You could procedurally texture the guy? then you wouldnt have to unwrap him... mite save some time

It was a inside joke pure, with me and pony... i also prefrer medeival! But, just so you all know, i DID NOT in any way intend to incorperate this gun with the dino.. as i realise that the gun was not modelled during this challenge. Just making sure none of you mix that up.

Hahhaa. WE can do the original plan..... Dino goes crazy with the gun and shoots at the centuar but misses every shot.. then the centuar nails the dino in the ass with a arrow and the dino goes hoppin off. Haha

This is a bad image guys, seeing theres not many good hardcore fullplate armors pictures out there (or what i know of and suits my taste). I was lookin for something that looked bulk and strong... i found this. Its not really good, just you get the general idea .

ROFL!!! I'd PAY to see that animation!! HahaHahahAHA. The ZF1 looks mighty deadly in his hands, but its funny cause his expression is like happy! Yah i'll have to find a face rigging tut somewhere.

Hey m, i was reading pony's Round1 thread and he mentioned something about putting the two models together for a render. Maybe i could send you the critter (he has a basic skeleton) and you could do his face so you could make him look all scared with a ZF1 in his face. Or maybe the dino is just standing on him with one foot or something. Either way it would be amusing. You want the .MB?

Also M is there a reason why there is no contrast on the the pic in the Tourny Image? It looks like crap. Not that it matters, just wondering if you were trying to SABOTAGE ME!?!?! jk lol

Haha, thanks vector.. but the mb is not needed atm. What i was thinking instead is that we figure out what poses we want on a storyboard.. and then we all do each seperate pose and render it out and save as a targa (no background). Then you can send the images to me and i can compose the scenes in photoshop. Thanks anyways . Just letting you know though, once you make a basic skeleton, you have the start of him made.... then you have to do the rest, which includes paint weights and blinn shapes. If you ever subscribe vectorman, i highly suggest the character rigging set . Ok, im going to start workin on my actual characters accessoriesm, and until im out of this tournament, im not going to spend my time making funny images anymore :p. Cya later.
